We’re in the #16Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, a time to talk about the realities of gender-based violence and the harm it causes women. More than 20,000 women experience violence in BC each year. It’s critical to understand the numbers and statistics behind gender-based violence, but it’s also important to listen to the stories of survivors in their own words. That’s exactly what DIVERSEcity’s Survivor-Centered Systems of Care Project aims to do. The project centres the experiences of racialized and newcomer women in gender-based violence systems of care. “By sharing their experiences, thoughts and ideas, the intention is that these brave women can help lead service providers in critical reflection and inform systems-based change on the policies and services provided in Canada,” says Nina Rihal, Project Manager, Survivor-Centered Systems of Care Project at DIVERSEcity.
